Potential for improved ATSR dual-view SST retrieval

Abstract:

Recent validation studies have confirmed that the first along-track scanning radiometer (ATSR) can retrieve sea surface temperature (SST) to an accuracy of 0.3K even in the presence of heavy atmospheric aerosol. However, using the standard (pre-launch) retrieval, this accuracy is achieved only when data from all three thermal channels (3.7, 11 and 12 μm) are available; in the absence of 3.7 μm data, retrieved SSTs are subject to significant cold bias. As 3.7 μm data are useful only for nightt...
